"Thrown two bullpens, two good ones," Arrieta said. "Everything is good, command is good. Now I just need a hitter in the box."
Manager Rick Renteria said Arrieta will throw another bullpen session Wednesday and might face live hitters after that.
"We’re monitoring his work and making sure he stays healthy first and foremost," Renteria said. "He still has to throw another 'pen in a few days."
Arrieta remains hopeful he will be ready for the start of the season.
"I still feel like I can be ready but we’re not going rush it," Arrieta said.
"It's been a good thing for me to get familiar at first base," Olt said. "I won't lose anything at third base. I want to be a versatile player.
"I've thrown there (third base) the last couple of days. My velocity is right where it needs to be ... I've had (shoulder tenderness) almost every year. You get here, you get excited and you throw a little too much."
Beachy said he was unable to locate pitches as he wanted. He added he was bothered by the injury in his previous two starts, but the discomfort worsened Monday. He said he has been told the injury is something he could pitch through in hopes of loosening up, but it got tighter Monday.
Beachy is uncertain if he will be ready for the start of the season.
"We'll see. We'll see how it recovers," Beachy said.
Beachy tossed two scoreless innings, allowing two hits and two walks. He struck out one before leaving the game Monday.
"Especially against lefties, for them to see something different, something slower going away like my two-seam [fastball]," Cishek said. "It actually has more drop than that. I started throwing it to righties, too, guys with quicker bat speed just to get them way out in front."
"Just what he’s done in the past and what you expect him to do, he’s the logical choice. He deserves it," Ventura said, per MLB.com.
Gee has spent the last week working on his mechanics with pitching coach Dan Warthen. Gee said the adjustment involved when he separates his hands during his delivery. The revision helps prevent his arm from dragging during the delivery.
"The ball was coming out of my hand a lot better than normal," Gee said.
